Gotcha Day

In the world of adoption Gotcha Day refers to the day that you officially execute your final adoption decree.  This morning at 10 am, Ashlyn Rae Towler is now, and forever, our daughter!   The final decree, executed by Judge Welch this morning means:

  • Alicia and I are Ashlyn’s parents and are noted as such on Ashlyn’s birth certificate, and
  • Ashlyn Rae Towler is now her legal name.

Alicia and I will never be able to thank everyone for all the support and encouragement that our family and friends have provided for us over the last 16 months.  We have literally been touched by hundreds of people.  What an amazing community of support.

The love story continues….
